There was this time when I was young

That many words tripped off my tongue

And as those dreams filled up my mind

The future was what I would find.

I used to wish that I could be

Some nice young man’s true destiny

It ne’er did happen I must add

Perhaps that made me rather sad.

Now as the road is winding down

I keep on smiling, seldom frown

So that my life can be pure bliss

Those dreams I’ve seen end with a kiss!

How often now I chance recall

Those olden times when I was small

And all those relatives I knew

That sheltered me my childhood through.

There’s been so many I could love

To aid me in my dreaming of

A life blest with both good and bad

Mongst all those joys I’ve known and had.

I need to thank each uncle, aunt

For every dream they helped to plant

And all that wisdom they taught me

To live life with integrity !

The wind, it whistles through the trees

Staccato bristling in the breeze

The air is crisp, its clean and clear

Sounds of autumn fall on the ear.

The Ides of March have come and gone

And Labor Day has since moved on

Ere long it will be Halloween

With other days squeezed in between.

All lives serve seasons in their turn

Each with some lesson we need learn

Our victories may have no date

Sometimes we simply have to wait !

See our blest flag at half staff flown

Whence seeds of valor there were grown

To honor heroes who have died

For God and man and nation’s pride !

AMEN.

The pages of the calendar do fly

Like storm tossed leaves across a windy sky

Days of our lives now swiftly pass us by

Their hours, minutes all whispering goodbye !

 

STARTING GATE ( 2018 ) 2018/08/31

My life has been a bundle of

Both smiles and tears, laughter and love

Mixed in with all the varied ploys

Of growing up midst foolish joys

It ne’er occured  that I should be

A child of opportunity

Oh how I wish I could have learned

To be grownup and more concerned.

The time has passed, it’s far too late

I guess I’ve missed the starting gate !

There is an echo that we hear

It speaks to all both loud and clear

Remember for each time we fall

The will one needs to stand up tall

Lies in the grace of God above

Who showers us with selfless love

While all we’re asked our lifetime through

Is to His virtue, remain true !
